Edelweiss
Playmates for Puppies

Meet these four delightfully quirky dogs, and track their travels on Neighborhood Maps

This little book tells the fascinating story of life in the desert as seen through the eyes of Renaldo, a Sonoran desert tortoise. Photos, drawings and Renaldo’s clear explanations help readers of all ages and backgrounds understand desert ecology. “I am more than 80 years old,” begins Renaldo, “and I’ve lived here all my life. I want to tell you about some of the things I’ve seen.”
